Hollywood actor Morgan Freeman and his wife of 24 years are to divorce, his lawyer has said.
Freeman's lawyer Bill Luckett told Access Hollywood that the 71-year-old actor and his costume designer wife Myrna Colley-Lee "are involved in a divorce action".
"And for legal and practical purposes the pair have been separated since December 2007," he added.
The Dark Knight star was involved in a serious car accident on Sunday and has just been released from hospital.
Freeman was driving a car belonging to his passenger, Demaris Meyer, when it left the road and overturned several times.
Mr Luckett, who owns a blues club with Freeman, visited the actor in hospital on Wednesday.
"It's going to take a few months because he got banged up pretty badly actually," he said.
"He's in good spirits today and he hopes his golf swing is going to be better than ever now with his fixed arm."
Freeman lived on a ranch with Myrna, who he married in June 1984.
